The Christmas Song Chords

   
From: Barrie McCombs 

THE CHRISTMAS SONG   Time: 4/4   Tenor: C   Bass: C


16        2m7      57    1maj7 
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

16         5m7     17      4
Jack Frost nipping at your nose

6m       4m6          1         77 
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

    3             2m7     7b7    3b
And folks dressed up like Eski - mos

2m7    57   1       2m7             1maj7      2m7  57
Ev'ry- body knows a turkey and some mistletoe

1       2m7      17     4       7b7
Help to make the season bright

6m   4m6             1          77
Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow

     3m7     67      2m7   57   1
Will find it hard to sleep to - night

               5m7 17          5m7
They know that San-ta's on his way

17            5m7              17             4maj7
. He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh

          4m7            7b7      3bmaj7
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/torme_mel/the_christmas_song_crd_ver_2.html ]
          6m7             27          57
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

    17     77    7b7      67     57
And so I'm offer-ing this simple phrase

   1         5m7    17     4     7b7
To kids from one to ninety-two

   6m7              7b7       1maj7       27
Al-though it's been said many times, many ways

      3m7    6m7 2m7  57  1maj7
Merry Christ-mas_____ to  you
